Every living thing on our planet needs air to survive. Most of the time, we hardly even think about Earth’s air.

We must join together in the quest to improve Earth’s air quality. With engaging text and eye-catching images—plus a special Going Green section—this book tells you all about Earth’s air and what you can do to protect it.
